0 3

Authorities have closed the A2 in both directions between the B255 Bean Lane and the A2260 Southfleet Road, in Northfleet. A Kent Police spokesman told KentLive: “We were called at 4.25pm on 25 June to a collision on the A2 near Ebbsfleet. “The road is currently closed in both directions.

“Officers are at the scene along with ambulance crews.”

Tailbacks are being reported as far back as Falconwood Interchange, with congestion currently at eight-and-a-half miles.

The road has already been closed for some time.

Moments earlier another crash happened on the M25 near the Dartford Crossing and another accident further down the A2 in Strood.


There are current delays of up to 40 minutes.

Traffic England said in a statement: “The A2 is currently closed from its junction with the B255 (Bean) to the A2260 (Ebbsfleet) with delays of at least 60 minutes covering approx 7 miles of the eastbound carriageway.

“This closure is due to a road traffic collision and Highways England has resources deployed working hard to restore normal conditions as soon as possible.

“This is impacting traffic leaving Greater London on the A2 and motorists looking to access the A2 from the M25.

“For traffic approaching the closure locally, you are advised to expect disruption with extra journey time and may potentially have to re-route your journey.

“If travelling towards this area from much farther afield, you may wish to change your strategic route, allow extra travel time and follow guidance from our on-road variable message signs and media.

“A diversion route is currently being established.”

This is a breaking news story.
